Shubie Lions capture Shooters fastpitch crown
BROOKFIELD, N.S. – There’s a new champion in the Shooters Bar and Grill Fastpitch League. The Shubie Lions won the title last Saturday after an 8-1 victory over three-time reigning champion White Rock Rockies in the final of the league’s championship tournament. The Lions went undefeated in three games at the doubleknockout event. They opened with a 3-1 win over the Rockies on Thursday, and blanked the regular-season champion Halifax Pepperjacks 8-0 on Saturday to punch their ticket to the final.
Credit the Rockies for a gutsy effort. After dropping their first game to the Lions, White Rock rhymed off three straight Saturday wins to earn a spot in the gold-medal game.
The Brookfield Elks posted a 1-2 record. The Elks defeated the Prodigy Red Sox 3-1 on Friday, before a 6-1 setback to the Pepperjacks later in the evening. Brookfield’s championship hopes came to an end after a 7-2 loss to the Rockies on Saturday.
